This is the official press release launched this week here in Brazil. I've just added the "monk-names", so you can see who's who. :)

---- Begin english ----

The International Perl Developers Meeting - YAPC::Brasil::2005 (Yet Another Perl Conference) will take place during the 6th Free Software International Forum, that will take place from june 1st to june 4th at PUCRS.

This is the first brazilian meeting supported by the Perl Foundation, entity based on the United States of America that supports the use and development of the language worldwide.

The meeting will be hosted by Porto Alegre Perl Mongers, directed by Er Galvão Abbott (DaWolf) and organized by Brasil Perl Mongers, represented by Flávio S. Glock (fglock) and Marco Lima (mago). One of the biggest attractions of the meeting will be the presence of Randal L. Schwartz (merlyn), one of the most influent personalities of the language worldwide and co-author of many Perl books, specially the famous Camel Book. Schwartz will give two lectures during the meeting.

Some YAPC activities will be free, while others, that will take place in the Forum will be available only for those who subscribed for it.

The Perl programming language allows the creation of programs that run on UNIX, Windows, Macintosh, among other Operating Systems. The language has many efficient text handling functions, feature that made it popular for Web programming, in addition to be heavily used on administrative tasks in UNIX systems, where the language was born and raised.

A linguagem de programação Perl permite a criação de programas em ambientes UNIX, Windows, Macintosh e outros sistemas operacionais. A linguagem possui funções muito eficientes para manipulação de textos, o que a torna popular para programação Web, além de ser muito utilizada em tarefas administrativas de sistemas UNIX, onde a linguagem nasceu e cresceu.

[Corion]: marto: How's things? I hope the kids are fine and you too!
[Corion]: Oh yay. I wonder why a very simple change in a program doesn't elicit a diff, and now I see that my diff program seems to have a bug ;)
[1nickt]: marto thanks for asking, so far so good. A pretty modern stack and decent procedures, although rather too much home-built stuff (e.g. a logging role that should tries to duplicate Log::Any).
[Corion]: No. It's just that I'm comparing the same output file twice, instead of comparing the output files of the two runs %-)
[Corion]: Lo and behold, running a program with the correct input files yields the correct (and expected) output. Yay me.
[1nickt]: Got a MacBook and am expected to develop directly on it, ironic given the recent thread about that.
[marto]: Corion, some not too serious issues with the kids, hopefully, other than that just dealing with commuting by car again in the winter, not much fun so far, and there's no real 'bad' weather yet :)
[marto]: 1nickt, glad to hear it, I'm sure you'll bring improvements to their stack in due course ;)
[1nickt]: Just trying to adjust to a new culture. Better doc than I am used to , but quite a bit more Agiley meta-bullshit; at least half a dozen meetings a week, strict "sprint" schedule etc. I'll adjust. And I hope to just switch off after the "scrum" each day at
[1nickt]: ... the end of the afternoon. marto How are you, snowed in? Mum and Dad expecting snow today in Surrey. (Have 5" on the ground here in NJ. And my son's high school in SOCal closed until after Xmas due to fires.)
